This book was written for every single mother who is learning for the first time how to raise their child without the assistant of a second parent. You will learn the various ways your situation is both different and the same depending on how you came to be a single mother ¿ whether it was out of marriage, through divorce, or by death. You will learn what you must expect right away and what hardships are truthful and which ones will only make your path harder by acknowledging. You will learn what to do when pregnant alone and how to rely on your family. You will learn the basics of early childcare and how much you can realistically expect to accomplish as a mother on her own. You will learn the basics of what a child needs in its first year, from breastfeeding and diapers to clothing and travel. You will learn how to prepare yourself for the sacrifice you will be forced to make and how to handle money matters while raising a child alone. Multiple interviews have been conducted with single mothers who have succeeded and experts in child care and child raising to provide a comprehensive outlook on everything you can expect as a single parent on your own ¿ from the first few weeks of stress to the later years of toilet training, proper diet, allergies, health care, and learning to talk.
